My Favourite Season
Hi everyone, I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend and are
looking forward to the week ahead. Spring will soon be here and
already we are seeing everything in our garden starting to burst into
life, the Crocus, Daffodils and Primroses are all starting to flower
and my miniature Weeping Willow tree now has buds which means
very soon there will be Pussy Willow upon it.
Which leads me onto my post for today, which is my DT card that I
made for our first Stella Team challenge over at
and the Stella Team challenge theme is
My Favourite Season
To make this card I used
7x7 white base card, Gold Satin Mirri, Dusty Pink Bazzill, First Edition "The Promise"
Design Papers (which are so beautiful), Die cut frame from my stash, Dusty Pink Satin
Ribbon and Hand Tied Bow, Various sized Ivory Pearls, Pearl and Diamante brooch &
Sakura Stardust Jelly Roll Pen
I matted some Pink Bazzill 16cm x 16cm onto the Gold Satin Mirri 16.5cm x 16.5cm ,
I then matted the beautiful First Edition 13cm x 13cm design Paper onto the
Pink Bazzill 13.5cm x 13.5cm and placed it on to the first, larger matt at an angle. Next
I matted more of the Pink Bazzill 10cm x 10cm card onto more Gold Satin Mirri
10.5cm x 10.5cm I then added foam pads onto the die cut frame and placed the
frame on top of the matt. ( I hope that you can just about see how I raised the die cut
frame up, my camera was having a Wobbler when I took the photo's and I just
couldn't get the lighting right LOL)
I then coloured up Mitzi's beautiful Orchids in the Rain image which can be found
in her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop, using the following Pro/Flexmarkers
Skin - Coral, Dusky Pink, Blush, Almond & Antique Pink
Hair - Satin, Tan, March Hare & Tawny Owl
Orchids - Antique Pink, Pastel Pink, Blossom & Pale Blossom
Leaves - Apple Cider, Marsh Green & Winter Spruce
I then added Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll to add an extra bit of interest.
I then added the ribbon and hand tied triple bow, I popped the brooch on top of the
bow, then added the pearls to the frame and card.
I hope that you will pop over to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to check
out what our lovely new Stella Design Team ladies have created to help
inspire you, we really would love for you to join in our new challenge and
tell us all what's your "Favourite Season"
